New Baby Card, using Lavinia Stamps

My friends became Grandparents recently, so I made a card for them.  I used the stamps that I knew were her favourite Lavinia Stamps.

I created a background using assorted colours of Distress Oxide Inks.  For the sky area, I used Antique Linen, Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky.  For the lower area, I used Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint.  I used the swooshing and a paint brush techniques to fill the area.

I used an assortment of Lavinia Stamps to build up the image, starting with "Sacred Spells" script stamp, stamped in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.  Using the same ink, I created the landscape lines by dragging the ink across the torn edge of copy paper. 

I stamped the "Celestial Tree"  in Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink then the "Midnight Meandering" in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" ink.

Using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink, I stamped the "Large Owl", the "Tree Branch", "Pipin" the baby hare, the "Fern Heads", the "Willow" and the "Mini Slender Mushrooms".

Finally, I added white highlights to areas using a Posca Pen.  I stamped the sentiment on the front of the card using a "Personal Impressions" stamp called "Double Sayings".  The sentiment I used inside the card is a stamp I have had for many years by Inkwell Stamps.  Both sentiments are stamped in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.
